Want to make your home as cozy and as comfortable as possible this fall?

It’s official, fall is here at last. The leaves are changing, pumpkin is the most popular ingredient on every menu and retailers are starting to line their shelves with Halloween decorations. Autumn is the most wonderful time of the year, and if you’re hoping to capture the magic of everyone’s favorite season in your home, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few incredible home improvement tips to make your home as comfortable and cozy as possible this fall.

#1. Add a fresh coat of paint to the front door.

The fall is the perfect time of the year for a big, detailed home remodeling project, like a kitchen or bathroom renovation, but for the same reasons, it’s also a great time of the year for minor projects, like painting your front door. The weather is not too hot or too cold, which makes it the perfect time for exterior painting projects. And, you’d be surprised at what a big difference a new coat of paint on your front door can make for the entire exterior of your home.

#2. Harness the power of the sun.

The best fall upgrades to your home not only make your home look more attractive, but they also make your home feel warmer and more comfortable. Now that fall is here, winter won’t be too far behind, and with the cold weather coming, harnessing the power of the sun is a great way to add a little warmth to your home without raising your energy bills. If you have older windows in your home, replacing them with new windows can help to increase the energy efficiency in your home. Or, if your budget won’t allow for new windows, consider resealing them and getting window film installed to increase their efficiency. Another great way to get more light is to add in a skylight.

#3. Build a firepit.

Now that it’s October, it’s finally getting cool enough outside to spend your evenings enjoying your outdoor space, and we still have a couple of months before the cold of winter gets here. It’s the perfect time of the year to enjoy the fire while roasting marshmallows and telling ghost stories, and there’s no better place to have a fire than your very own firepit. Firepits are incredibly functional, and they can be as complicated or as simple as you’d like, making them perfect for any budget or timeframe.
